Happy Water Wednesday! During Smart Irrigation Month, we should all be working to reduce our water use. While there has been great advancement in the field of irrigation equipment, keep in mind that your water conservation plans should focus on more than just your irrigation system. Combining efficient equipment with smart practices and products, like #Hydretain, can increase the amount of water you save.

Smart Irrigation Tip: While #CytoGro is not classified as a water conservation product, by encouraging deeper root growth, it can help increase plants' tolerance to drought stress. Combine it with #Hydretain for even greater water saving benefits.

Dear Mother Nature, can we please have a nice, soaking rain like this one from a couple of weeks ago? Pretty please? I don't mind the 97 degree heat, but what the ground needs is more rain! #mothernature #letitrain #iwishitwouldraindown #iwishitwereraining #considerthisaraindance #txdrought2014 #txlife #txdrought #tiredofthedrought #makeitrain

leissnerart : What is hydretain composed of?
ecologelsolutions : Thanks for the question, @leissnerart! Hydretain is composed of hygroscopic humectant compounds. Once Hydretain has been applied, these compounds work together in the soil by condensing unusable water vapor into plant usable water droplets, reducing your watering needs by 50% or more. If you'd like more info, visit our webpage: www.hydretain.com.
Around many parts of Lake Buchanan in central Texas, lost items like this old mooring rope can be found once again as the water has long since evaporated. – @aaronbates #igtexas #txdrought #drought #hillcountry
digipoet : We need rain!!!!!
kmcmec : @st3pchild
instagramtexas : We've had plenty of rain, but much of the state is still in a water deficit.
hnormizzle : Buchanan rose two and a half feet recently. I love exploring the lake bottom.
digipoet : We're getting rain tonight in West Texas!!! 👍
gramlesskale : Sad. But finally receiving some much much needed rain!
thipp67 : This makes me sad. Lord, here our cry for rain to restore our natural resources.

#waterwednesday Passed by this truck keeping the dust down at a construction site...Water is used for everything! Ever think about golf courses? The average one uses 312,000 gallons PER DAY. That's what 8 people use ALL YEAR. Maybe time to try some xeriscaped gold courses?

jamichaelparty : I know a lot of golf courses have wells in brackish zones that aren't potable out of the ground. Some kind of treating would be needed. Interested in CRA thoughts on brackish use.

#waterwednesday Heard that one before?? About 30% of household water use is flushed away! That's 18 gallons of clean drinking water per person. We flush at the end of the day and before work so it doesn't sit too long, otherwise we follow this rule! Make sure to check with your roomies before you surprise them 😜 It's the smallest changes that make an impact!

#waterwednesday Had a friend ask me the most efficient way to wash dishes. You can conserve either way, hand washing properly can save the most! Hand washing: fill half sink (or large bowl/pot) with warm soapy water and scrub everything. Rinse in cool water in another bowl/sink compartment. Total gallons: 3-4 Dishwasher: Use minimal water (if any) rinsing plates beforehand. Fill the washer UP! Total gallons in average dishwasher: 15

vinnyman42 : WoW
jackfrazee : I love these water conservations tips/bits of info you're putting up. It's good to keep conservation buzzing in the brain otherwise it's easy to slip into wasteful habits. Do you know if rainwater harvesting has a negative effect - in that the water collected may be at the expense of it draining into aquifers/communal storage?
jackfrazee : Let me know if that ^^^ question doesn't make sense.
tcal2000 : @jackfrazee do you mean the amount of acid and chemical compounds could be in the water?
wildwoolley : @jackfrazee I've wondered the same thing! The answer I always find is that they aren't widespread enough to make a significant impact, but if more and more people use rain barrels it might (??)

#waterwednesday Do you know where your drinking water comes from? NO?! Look it up RIGHT NOW! Is it surface water, groundwater, a combo? Where is it stored? We should all be able to answer this basic human question. Mine comes from the #Texas #ColoradoRiver and is stored in #LakeTravis but piped from #LakeAustin. What about you? #surfacewater #groundwater #water #txwater #txdrought

jamichaelparty : The door of my refrigerator!
trevswindell : Do you work for the Colorado River Authority?
jackfrazee : @wildwoolley I just learned that my drinking water in Houston will likely contain traces of Dallas' sewage - but apparently that is safe to drink at low levels and good for water quality in rivers... Or maybe the writer of the article was trying to dupe everyone into drinking poo water.
wildwoolley : @jamichaelparty yep magically appears 😜 @trevswindell Work on #lcra 's campus with @coloradoriveralliance
wildwoolley : @jackfrazee YES! Poo water is the future. We have the technology to return wastewater back to drinking standards...it's just about public perception now!
jackfrazee : Who would have thought that the solutions of the future would involve drinking sewage.

#waterwednesday Ever think about that clean drinking water you flush down the toilet? Place a jug, brick, container into your toilet to save up to a gallon per flush! Check out those numbers...this can be a great way to save water & money! Be sure to remove the paper/sticky labels so they don't clog your flushing mechanism. #savewater #savemoney #txdrought #txwater #conserve #drought #waterislife #conserveh2o
